NEKTON First Descent MISSION LOG: The NEKTON Team Returns From the Successful Launch of First Descent


​​​​​​​​Nearly 50 days at sea, covering 2300 nautical miles, with a team of up to 60, including crew,  on our Mothership, the Ocean Zephyr, we undertook over 300 science deployments, across 7 key locations in the previously unexplored depths of the Seychelles, helping to provide key data and new skills to inform the protection of 30% of Seychelles EEZ (equivalent in size to twice the UK).
